I don't know if you already came to a conclusion here but I just wanted to
chime in a bit. First off, understand that ESL inbound is extremely powerful
- you can do pretty much anything you want. In fact, there is nothing
preventing you from connecting in via ESL, then launching a call that goes
through the dialplan and then executes a script written in

My advice to you is to break this down into smaller pieces. Create a
dialplan extension and script that tests an IVR and make sure it works. Then
create an ESL application that controls FreeSWITCH and can launch one or
more calls through your test extension. Repeat as needed.
